Using modern psychology integrated with the ancient texts of Shakespeare, DE-CRUIT helps military Veterans heal trauma, recover from deployments, return home fully, and rewire their brain from war/war-training.

Invest in the kind of world that you want to live in.
There are nearly 25 million living Veterans. Each Veteran, on average, has at least two family members and at least two intimate friends. That's 40% of the U.S. population directly affected everyday by Veterans moods, behaviors and actions. When we add community members such as: neighbors, acquaintances, classmates, etc. that percentage skyrockets towards 65% of the population directly connected to military Veterans.
In addition to the high dropout rate for traditional therapy (68% within the first 90 days), it is additionally difficult for rural Veterans to make it to VA's and/or programming that they need... which is why DE-CRUIT travels to the Veterans!
100% of your donations will go directly towards helping military Veterans.
$7,000 for stipends to pay 35 Veterans at $200 each, and $3,000 to cover the expenses of traveling over 4,000 miles to reach the Veterans over the 7-week course.
Your donations are tax-deductible! DE-CRUIT is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization and a Bronze-level GuideStar participant, demonstrating its commitment to transparency.
